China Glaze’s Rodeo Diva Collection really caught my eye. I haven’t gone on a nail polish spending spree in sometime, but I just couldn’t get these out of my head. There were so many colors that called to me. In reality, I didn’t fall in love with as many as I wanted to, but I did find several that I can’t wait to do full manis/pedis with!

Wagon Trail (above) is this insane combination of brown-black with gold shimmer. It has some of the coolest reflectivity to it. I also thought Rodeo Fanatic was phenomenal–it is like MAC’s Whirldwind, but bluer and richer and betterRed Stallion is a bright holiday-perfect red with subtle shimmer, and I imagine I have a few similar reds already. Golden Spurs is a brownish-tan color with lots of visible golden shimmer, which brightens it from a rather “blah” base to something suitable to wear around the office. Yee-Haw! has the same texture/look as Golden Spurs, but it’s a subdued coppery-orange-brown base. Lasso My Heart is such a gorgeous shade of a deep, jewel-toned purple with fuchsia shimmer. Cowgirl Up is an intense shade of bright jewel-tone fuchsia-purple; it’s just out of this world–I loved it. Prize Winning Mare is a cooler tan-brown with gold shimmer; it didn’t really do anything for me.Midnight Ride looks black in the tube, but it has this fuchsia-purple reflection that is lovely (which shows up well in the photo).Branding Iron is a dark, intense ruby red that’s a little on the vampy side; it’s such a deep shade of red with some shimmer, I love it. Gussied Up Green is darker than a true emerald green–it has some forest green in it–but the shimmer makes it fun to wear. Side Saddle is a dark reddish brown color with shimmer that looks multi-colored in some lighting.

My Must-Haves: Wagon Trail, Rodeo Fanatic, Cowgirl Up, Midnight Ride, & Branding Iron

See the rest of the swatches…

All swatches are done quickly with two coats to show you color, not neatness ;)

    Where can I purchase China Glaze (online)? Have you ever ordered from 8ty8beauty.com? The prices seem too good to be true….

    I’ve been wanting this collection for a LONG time, but nowhere near me has it. :(

    • I’ve ordered from there before! That’s actually where these came from :) They’re really quick to ship, the shipping price is accurate (I paid $11 on 20 nail polishes). My order was slow because two polishes were out of stock, so that’s why I had to wait so long.

    I’m loving a lot of these shades. I find that shimmer polish always lasts longer on my nails. Can’t wait to buy some of these!

    Yee Haw!

    I buy China Glaze at a local Sally Beauty Supply store. I went there looking for “Wagon Trail,” but it wasn’t available, so I bought “Gussied Up Green” instead. I absolutely love it! Definitely going back to get more of the RD Collection!

  10. Holy shizzy! Branding Iron and Wagon Train shall be mine.
    Gussied Up Green and Midnight Ride are hot too.
